Buying The Field

  • Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in the field, which a man found, and hid. In his joy, he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field. Matthew 13:44 WEB.

    Jesus told a parable about a man who found some hidden treasure in a field. He joyfully sold all that he had so he could buy the land and make it his own. The man couldn't take the treasure without first purchasing the field. And though it cost him everything he had, it was absolutely worth it. His total sacrifice to buy the field brought him a great treasure in the end.

    Jesus is a lot like the treasure in the field. When you truly get a glimpse of Him, nothing else seems to matter. You will joyfully give up all the things that used to seem so important. And the more you give up for His sake, the more He will give back to you in return.

    Jesus said, "Most certainly I tell you, there is no one who has left house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or land, for my sake, and for the sake of the Good News, but he will receive one hundred times more now in this time: houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and land, with persecutions; and in the age to come eternal life. Mark 10:29-30 WEB.

    Yet, I am talking about the things that He is asking you to change in your life. Not what various religious traditions have told you. You can usually ignore those because you don't need to become a replica of someone else to please God. Just walk with Him and talk with Him each day of your life, and He will gradually bring the right changes to pass at the right time.

    The Kingdom of God is free, yet in the end, it will cost you everything. If you don't let go of the things that hold you back, the things you hold more dear than God, then you cannot have the treasure hidden within it. You have to commit and buy the field. The price is high. Stay the course, stay committed, for there will be an excellent reward for those who do.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I choose Your way. Please lead me into all that You have for me. Bring the changes to my life that need to be done. Help me to grow ever closer to You. Forgive me of the things I have done wrong and fill me afresh with Your Holy Spirit. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
